Count Blake Shelton among those who were shocked to learn that Adam Levine won’t return as a judge on Season 17 of The Voice.
The news was announced on Today on May 24 by the host of The Voice, Carson Daly.
Adam has served as a judge with Blake since the show’s inception in 2011. The pair’s often-contentious shtick continued to keep viewers tuning in for 16 seasons. After hearing the news, Blake didn’t miss the chance to hurl a final Twitter insult Adam’s way, noting that he was “gonna miss working with that idiot.”
Having a hard time wrapping my head around @adamlevine not being at @NBCTheVoice anymore. After 16 seasons that changed both of ours lives. I only found out about this yesterday and it hasn’t set in on me yet. Gonna miss working with that idiot.

Gwen Stefani will take over Adam’s chair for Season 17, joining boyfriend Blake, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson as judges.
